Lamplight at 5:00 pm on Saturdays.
Our Saturday night service (5:00 pm) is called “Lamplight”. The service is intended to bring the light of Christ into the hearts and lives of people so they can be set free to be His people and bear His light to others. The style is a mixture of traditional elements and new – the liturgy is “from the heart” rather than from a page and sometimes embedded in the music. But Lamplight worship also retains some congregational speaking from words projected on a screen (confession of sin, confession of faith using a historic creed, and praying the Lord’s Prayer), and of course, congregational singing too.
Traditional Worship (with the organ and the Lutheran Service Book hymnal) at 8:30 am on Sunday morning.
Sunday morning at 8:30 is our classical or traditional service, incorporating the music of our beautiful pipe organ, and occasionally piano and other orchestral instruments, adult choir, soloists, and hand bells. The liturgy and hymnody are largely taken from the Lutheran Service Book (Concordia Publishing House).
“Morning Song” Contemporary Worship at 11:00 am
Sunday morning at 11:00 service is our contemporary/blended service that has a solid liturgical foundation but with a popular style of “praise and worship” music. At this service, you will hear drums, brass, flutes, keyboards, guitars, electric bass, and an ensemble of singers with microphones.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion is offered at Lamplight the Saturday before a 2nd or 4th Sunday
at 8:30 on 2nd and 4th (and 5th) Sundays, and
at 11:00 on 1st and 3rd (and 5th) Sundays
(and also at some mid-week services such as Maundy Thursday and New Year’s Eve)
The Lord’s Supper is a Holy Communion with both Christ and fellow believers. Our Lord invites to His table those who are baptized and instructed in the Christian faith, who are repentant of their sins, and who believe that along with the bread and wine they receive His true body and blood for the forgiveness of sins. If you have questions, please speak to the pastor. The individual cups in the center of the tray contain unfermented grape juice for those with medical reasons for abstaining from wine.
Supervised child care is provided all throughout Sunday morning worship services and Sunday School.
